From an award-winning author and advocate, Autism Life Skills presents a positive and empowering "bill of rights" for every person with autism, regardless of impairment level. With advice and reflections from autistic adults across the spectrum, as well as Sicile-Kira's own experience as an advocate and parent of an autistic teen, the book covers these ten essential life skills:
Making Sense of the World * Communication * Safety * Self-Esteem * Pursuing Interests * Self-Regulation * Independence * Social Relationships * Self- Advocacy *Earning a Living
Whether your child or student has Asperger's or is on the more severely impaired end of the autism spectrum, this action-oriented guide will provide hope and help -- so that every child has a chance to reach his or her full potential.
Temple Grandin, Ph.D., from the Foreword
The many moving personal stories from adults on the spectrum in Chantals books provide much- needed insight into the children we are raising and educating today. Both parents and educators will gain more understanding of what it is like to have autism, and learn how we can best prepare our children for adulthood. I highly recommend this excellent book.
Lee Grossman, President and CEO, Autism Society of America
In her best work yet, Chantal went straight to the source people on the autism spectrum to answer some of the most vexing questions related to helping those with autism to lead fulfilling and productive lives to the greatest extent possible.
Stephen M. Shore, Ed.D., author and autism consultant
